Peshawar BRT Is Four-Times Bigger Project Than Lahore Metro Bus: Shahbaz Gill

Islamabad: Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Political Communication, Dr Shahbaz Gill here Thursday said mega Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) was a gift of PTI Government for people of Peshawar that would provide state-of-the art travelling facilities to people.

Addressing a press-conference here at Information Cell, Shahbaz Gill said despite malicious propaganda of political opponents, BRT has been completed with all modern facilities.

He said propaganda of political opponents died after completion of BRT and all such propaganda elements were now hiding faces from people.

Shabaz Gill said people of small provinces have the same rights as of big provinces, adding BRT Peshawar would provide the same travelling facilities as being enjoyed by people of Punjab and Islamabad.

While comparing Lahore Metro with Peshawar BRT, Shahbaz Gil said only nine kilometers portion of the former was elevated against 13 kilometers of Peshawar and three kilometers underground paving the way of uninterrupted easy mode of communication in the provincial capital of KP.

Shahbaz Gill said BRT was a unique project having three completed parking plazas from where financial resources would be generated besides a bicycle track facility.

He said opponents made baseless propaganda against BRT by comparing it with Lahore and Multan Metros and today all such propaganda elements were exposed before masses. He said BRT was a flagship project of PTI Government and transparency was of its hallmark with all expenditures record documented.

The PM’s aide said problems of private transporters would be addressed on priority basis and urged transport minister KP to hold a meeting with private transporters to address their genuine problems.
